Study! Study! Study! There is no better way to get the grades you want then by cracking open your textbooks, writing up some flash cards, and using your library research tools, right? Well, yes, you’re right.

And if you have anything to add, leave it in the comments!
As we head back to school this fall, there are some necessities to have! For commuters, this includes a solid lunchbox and loaded gas card. For campus residents, we need to freshen our hampers and load up on ramen noodles. But this coming semester, let’s all make sure we have something else: APPS. Whether you rely on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, let’s increase our productivity and strengthen our social bonds by checking out these ten must-have (FREE!) apps for the fall semester, as compiled by student part-time interns/full-time millennials Samantha and I.
Check out our rundown after the jump! And if you think we left any good ones out, let us know in the comments.
Ankesh Arora ’09, MS ’11, was nurturing a startup in Binghamton — providing marketing strategies for businesses in college towns — when a new opportunity caught the entrepreneur’s eye.
That’s how his current venture, Mobile Universal, got started. Arora and Zia Siddiqui are co-founders of the company that makes custom apps for businesses such as restaurants, hotels and schools. It has clients in New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Europe and South America.
“We had to completely stop the old business and focus on apps because there was such a narrow window for apps,” Arora says. “If we had gotten into this venture two or three months later, we would have missed our opportunity.”
